The bong 5.4 Brians first climb outside!

Description 

Overlooking Steve Canyon and the Outback is this shady, low-angled face which is home to a number of easy to moderate routes from 5.4 to 5.10+. The Bong (5.4) with it's smooth jams and fun roof is the best and most popular route on this side of the rock.


Getting There 

The easiest approach is the same as the west face - by following a well defined trail that leads from the Intersection Rock parking lot past the west face of the Old Woman and into Steve Canyon and the Outback. Once below the west face head for a gully (better yet the slab right of it) just right of where Hobbit Roof (5.10d) is located and then follow it easily to the base of the north face.
